  • To even get a booking to dine at The Old Head was a marathon. As we were not playing golf that day, there actually had to be a management meeting to allow us to eat there, but they had to honour it...  more »
  • The Old Head Golf Links is exceptional! We had a fantastic caddy Terry who carried both our bags and oh boy, my bag weighs a tonne! Terry's line reading is just spot-on and you really have to trust your caddy on this, even though he tells you to smash your ball towards the water, as the winds will bring it back onto the right of the fairways! The course is picturesque and it's easy to get distracted by the stunning views! Not quite your typical links course but still very beautiful. Service and food at the Suites are amazing! And the rooms all have a breathtaking view of the 18th green and the lighthouse. BUT there's only 15 suites! Definitely worth the stay to get the full experience! We'd definitely be back, only this time, we'd stay longer! 💖
  • I loved this course! It was so stunning. The views from every hole are amazing. It was a difficult course especially being our first time playing it. With a number of blind shots it was nice having the local knowledge from the caddies.
